Here are some suggested peer editing jobs to get you started. Feel free to edit, revise, tween and publish this sheet for student use.
Check for words that are used well, overused, incorrectly used, or could be substituted for more descriptive or interesting words.
Big Picture Person: Check to make sure the writing is complete. Focus on main ideas, paragraphs, details and use of transitions.
Check to make sure the tense remains constant. It's easier to write in the past tense than it is to write in the present.
Design and redesign roles based on the skills you are covering in your writing curriculum.
